Once upon a time, on a cold and frosty Christmas Eve night, a bedraggled white cat called Polar Bear wandered into Cleveland Amory's life and won his heart. This remarkable, much-loved cat went on to become the focus of Cleveland's classic bestseller, The Cat Who Came for Christmas . The Cat Who Stayed for Christmas continues the true story of Cleveland and Polar Bear as they embark upon exciting adventures whilst continuing to stubbornly guard their territory and engage in hilarious battles of will. Full of unexpected delights, and written with warmth and humour, The Cat Who Stayed for Christmas recounts the many escapades of Polar Bear and the man he owns.
Cleveland Amory founded The Fund for Animals, which campaigned against all forms of cruelty to animals throughout the world. He was a distinguished American journalist, satirist and novelist. Cleveland died aged 81 in 1998, and was buried next to his beloved cat, Polar Bear.
